[Tap] Pours a light brown color with a quickly receding white head. Aroma of caramel and some earth. Toffee in the taste, with toasted hazelnut, caramel and sweet breads. Average mouthfeel and palate. Well balanced. There are no big surprises here, but this is still another well made beer from Live Oak.

Fruity, fruit sour, acetic acid, that blows out, it's real beer all right. Had at BB Rovers north Austin with a lunch of chicken salad and Doggie Style (the beer). It almost spoiled the afternoon. Not much bitterness besides some husky tannins. Sweet.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cellared 12 oz. competition/sample bottle poured to my 1/2 pint tasting glass with a clear, coppery amber hue, light tan, creamy head, and draping ribbons of lacing. The aroma was light toast and a little caramel, light estery tartness, and a bit of sweetness. The flavor was smooth, lightly toasted malt and moderate hop bitterness. The body was medium, and the mouthfeel had a light creaminess to it. Some of the bitterness lingered lightly, along with some dryness, into the finish. Less a few light style glitches, not bad.

Draft @ flying saucer H-town. Was called a Vienna but tasted a lot more aleish. Poured an orange. Bit of head. Some malts and a fairly strong hops finish. OK.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium amber body, thin off-white head, traces of lacing. Crackery and grainy malts, some caramel, light floral hops. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, a bit muddled. Not Live Oakís best.

Tap at Hay Merchant. Clear brown with a decent beige head. Nice floral hop character in this one, itís like a dark pilsener. Pretty light bodied. Nice vienna.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Grove in Austin.
Pours dark amber with a decent head; the aroma is caramel malt and a hint of grassy hops. The flavor is a barely sweet, slightly sour+metallic hoppy throughout, providing a rather uninspired amber lager that Iím in no big hurry to revisit.

Amber color with a nice amount of white head. Bready and caramel malt aromas - flavor is the same with a bit of a hop bite. Above average lager.
